Sri Lanka is recognized as a must-visit bucket list destination and it has an amazing diversity in climate, food, flora and fauna, beaches, sceneries, history & culture, and more than anything friendliest people.
We recommend you to read some very interesting articles on Lonely Planet about Sri Lanka and how it listed Sri Lanka as the Number 1 Travel Destination in the World in 2019. But due to the covid-19 world pandemic, the tourism industry in the country had been hanging by its thread and finally picking up now from 2022.
Sri Lanka is believed to be the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD to See a Leopard in the wild considering the high density of Leopard population in the Greater Yala Complex. Yes, that’s even outsung Africa considering the probability of seeing a leopard in the wild is almost guaranteed if you do 2 or more safari drives in the Greater Yala Complex.
However this does not mean that we are Leopard whisperers or we can promise you a leopard sighting; simply, if you wanna see a leopard guaranteed, the best place to go is the Zoo, not a national park!
The Greater Yala Complex Used to be a civilized kingdom 2000 odd years ago, and additionally historic and prehistoric archeological evidence dating back to more than 4000 years ago.
Now it has become a kingdom for wildlife where the Sri Lankan Leopard has become the king of the jungles in Yala as the apex predator. GYC is home to more than 200 different resident bird species and much more with migrant birds during the winter season.
